Why Cape Town?

Grab a copy of ONE NIGHT IN CAPE TOWN and be seduced on a mountain top by a seriously sexy backpacker who knows exactly what he needs to do not only to survive, but also to claim the woman he wants!

So why did I decide on Cape Town when I opted to write for the City Nights Series? Well, that’s easy. Mr Harlem and I recently enjoyed a trip to South Africa and completely fell in love with the place. It's not hard to tell why, here's a few photographs I took while trekking over and around Table Mountain...

Table Mountain view from Cape Town

View from the top - Cape Town with Robben Island in the distance on the left.

Cable Car - we didn't hike!

Just one of the many steep tracks over the top, that isn't completely flat!

We love mountains and often stomp up our local ones in Wales, but Table Mountain was somewhere I’d always wanted to visit. I wasn’t disappointed. The views are stunning and hiking over the flat top to the furthest point, Mclear’s Beacon, was great fun (and hot and tiring!).

It occurred to me while we were up there, and hadn’t seen any other tourists for some time, how wild the place is. There’s animals – baboons, dasai, the odd big cat like a serval – and it really does feel remote, not least because the weather can change quickly and then, if it's windy, the cable car stops working. The only option when that happens is to hike down to the city which takes about 3 hours.

Dasai - their nearest relative is the elephant. They're actually pretty tame.

Lizard on Maclear's Beacon. He was doing 'press-ups' to keep cool.

And it's this bad weather which rolls in fast which gave me the idea for my couple to get stuck on the mountain top for the night. Luckily the hero, Levi, is pretty adept at survival and they manage to shelter, but it’s cold, so of course, me being me, I thought up some sexy ways for them to keep warm. Let’s just say they’re soon distracted from the storm and focusing solely on each other and the pleasure they’re finding.

Thanks for reading, and if you ever get the chance to visit Cape Town, do take a trip up the mountain, and if you have a hot companion (like I did!) then all the better.

Back Cover Information for One Night in Cape Town

The week before her big day, Tia catches her fiancé getting down and dirty with her best friend. She quickly washes her hands of them both. But why waste a perfectly good and very expensive honeymoon to her dream spot-South Africa?

After bumping into the same cute guy three times in Cape Town, Tia's reminded she still has desires. Before long, they’re hiking over Table Mountain together, and getting to know each other.

But when trouble brews in the African sky, a wild storm leaves them stranded on the mountain as night falls. Levi's survival skills provide them with quick shelter as the storm rages above. But for Tia, another storm rages between her and her sexy saviour. Will he teach her to trust again? Or is there more to the hot American than meets the eye?
